I had a small infestation of thrips last week, I used Mite X to get rid of them, and I took off all the leaves with white spots to dispose of the eggs. Today I noticed they were coming back, either that or it's a new infestation, I haven't been able to get a thrip/mite screen on my intake yet. When I was inspecing my plants I saw 2 very small white bugs that moved way too fast to be baby thrips, they moved as fast as an adult thrip would (I saw an adult last week). I'm not sure what they are and I have no pics or pocket microscope yet, hopefully my description will be enough since I'm releasing lady bugs tommorow and if they're a mite I might want to treat with neem oil first. They're about the same size as a baby thrip but they're white, maybe a little greyish. They move quickly and they might make small webs or cacoons of some kind that can't be seen by the human eye. (A piece of perlite hung from a leaf I clipped today, couldn't see what was holding it there though) That's what I know for sure. These are other things that may or may not be related. I got bit twice on the right wrist while watering & spraying. And right now it feels like I have some crawling on me, but I don't see shit. I'm itching like crazy though ever since I sprayed in there. I've noticed white dots on the leaves over the last week that ended up being something on the leaf, not thrip damage. You can rub it off with your finger. I just assumed it was dead thrips but someone suggested it might have been white fly shit. When I took my micro sheers and tried to move it, it looked like a tiny flake, kinda like a small piece of ash or something. The leaves are very dry and some have become waxy looking. Also some show damage like I haven't seen in any thread. The edges of some leaves look kinda like they've been chewed on. Some have greyish spots that become small holes. And 3 leaves were almost cut in half only held together by the center vein, 2 of them it's only a crack but one of them has an actual part of the leaf missing so the middle vein is completely exposed for about 1/8". So I sprayed again with Mite X and I'll be releasing 1,500 lady bugs in there tommorow as a precaution to future infestations. Before I release them I need to know if these things are something that lady bugs wont kill off. If I need to treat with neem oil or something, then I have to wait to release the lady bugs. Does any of the above description sound like anything that anyone has had before? (I can't find anything on any of the threads) +rep for any help.
